health is bullshit

Dumb
Photobucket

So, I get a decent amount of exercise, I don't eat a lot of shitty food, I don't smoke, I don't drink hardly at all.

And this is where it gets me at 42: the CCU in Holy Family Hospital, after having a severe heart attack last night. Now I have 2 stents in my arteries, and an oncoming assault of freakish medications and whatnot to deal with for the rest of my life. Kinda depressing, that.

This'll put a damper on my final projects for ALL my classes, which are due next week. Fuckery.



...so, how YOU folks doing?

OMG! How terrible! I'm so sorry. I'm thankful they were able to take care of you, though. Do they have any idea what caused it?

How frightening! (Heart attacks are one of my greatest fears since I was once hypertensive and since I'm diabetic.)

Sending you all kinds of healing wishes.

They just said something about plaque buildup in the arteries. Apparently my cholesterol level isn't super high, but my triglycerides are? They haven't been super clear about any of it, really.

I'm so sorry, that sucks so much. I'm thinking good thoughts that you're out of there as soon as possible!
